    Don't worry, they're not that bad. Most modern diesels have some problems when the miles get higher and are mostly due to the stupid euro emissions devices that have to be fitted. A 2009 model will have the improved manifold with swirl valves but it will clog up with soot and oil vapour eventually. Tbh a manifold won't cost as much as a clutch if you have to get it done at sometime. Egr valves are a pain on all cars but sometimes they can go on for years with routine cleaning and £100 for a new one isn't the end of the world. DPF's sometimes cause trouble but mine managed 240,000 miles without bother and there are some ways to remove it or modify it. You should get plenty miles from the car before you run into problems but just look after the clutch!!

    i clean my egr and boost sensor about every 4-5 months , the dpf i dont worry about only when it hammers my fuel when its cleaning its self out lol , u can tell when its cleaning when my instant mpg goes from 0.1 to 0.8 when stationary .keep it running till it drops back down , mine hunts slightley wich is a give away . my dual mass went before 60k but most cars have em , keep clutch pedal depressed when starting and shutting down and be easy on it . swirl valves there is a cheap fix if u look on the forum .other than that they are a great car and generally easy to work on .

    Hi, And welcome to the club - I wouldn't worry too much - and don't start to fix things if they ain't broke - I think you can get a bit paranoid reading some of the horror stories posted on the forum - but you should be aware of what could happen and if you are unlucky enough to get any of the symptoms described you will at least have some idea of what may be wrong and what is needed to sort it out. The main thing, as with all cars, is to keep it well serviced and maintained and it should serve you well - its a late model so hopefully a lot of the problems encountered on older cars will have been sorted out by now. Enjoy your new car
